WETUMPKA, AL — The Chiles’ girls team, to use a baseball analogy, batted a thousand on Tuesday at the Girls’ Indians Invitational.
Ashley Shaw (132) and Cadee Lyons (165) made up the entirety of the Lady Timberwolves’ contingent, and both came back to Florida with weight-class victories.
Chiles finished sixth as a team with 42 points in the 13-team IBT (some weight classes were run as roundrobins); the other 12 teams were all from Alabama.
Shaw pinned her way into the 132 final behind falls over wrestlers from Ben Russell (quarters) and Gulf Shores (semis), setting the pace in the final against Prattville’s Nevaeh Browder behind takedowns in each period for a 7-1 decision, pushing her season record to 9-1.
Lyons (ranked 15th at 170) was the top seed in the 165 bracket, and got a bye into the semis, where she needed only 46 seconds to fall a Prattville wrestler. After a scoreless period and being ridden for most of the second in the final against Stanhope Elmore’s Tereasha Peasant, Lyons got out with :39 left and scored a takedown in the last moments of the second. She then rode out Peasant for a 3-0 win.
The next event on the Chiles’ girls schedule is the Lady Pirate Invitational at Matanzas on January 14.
